</p><p>Myopia Management</p><p>

</p><p>Short-sightedness (or Myopia) is becoming more and more common.</p><p>In the UK it has more than <strong>doubled</strong> in 50 years in children between 10 and 16 and children are becoming myopic at an earlier age.</p><p>This is more than just an inconvenience. Being short-sighted puts you more at risk of sight-threatening conditions such as retinal detachment and glaucoma, and the risk increases the more short-sighted you are.</p><p>

</p><p>Fortunately, there are management options available.</p><p>Robson Opticians are one of a select few practices qualified to fit MiSight 1 Day contact lenses to reduce the rate at which myopia progresses.</p><p>MiSight 1 Day contact lenses reduced the progression of myopia by an average of <strong>59%</strong> over three years.</p><p>
